Bells for John Whiteside’s Daughter ENG 150-05 2/12/16 Bells for John Whiteside’s Daughter (Link) What is the poem about? The death of a little girl, although were not explicitly told this. Why might this be about someone close to the author? Uncomfortable about the subject Hard for him to face it Proof Positive language Uses past tense Astonished by her Bells for her honor Docent name her What’s the tone? Not sad Reminiscent / reflecting It was a big shock Bittersweet, she sad but accepting it. “She took arms against her shadow” She’s fighting a battle, and just wants an outcome She wants it to be over Maybe she was fighting a battle and hasn’t given up She is still trying to keep going. Her shadow Could mean death Something always following you Always there Representation of you Not tangible Can’t actually fight it Impossible battle you can’t win Bells for John Whiteside’s Daughter ENG 150-05 2/12/16 No matter how hard you try you can’t win “Her brown study” It’s a state of deep thought She has the same effect in life and death Mature demeanor “To say we are vexed at her brown study, lying so primly propped.” Postmortem photos During the Victorian era. Photos were taken of dead children after their death because often times there phots wasn’t taken yet People used this as a way of coping and it gave them something to hold onto. What this poem is about is morning for a little girl’s death. It is never said what the relationship between the author and the little girl is, but we can tell that they were close. We can also tell that this took place during the Victorian era because they indirectly talk about taking postmortem photos of the little girl.
